SEQUIM — Linda Allen and several members of her staff at Pacific Northwest Veterinary Hospital in Sequim donated their time to spay and neuter 10 of the Aussie-border collie WAG rescues from the May 19 rescue in Agnew.
“It is fortunate we were able to get them all done in one day; Dr. Allen and her staff were amazing,” WAG president Barb Brabant said.
Once under anesthesia, Allen was able to evaluate each dog and help with their skin conditions, microchip, cut nails, as well as the surgery, Brabant said.
One dog had an infection that if not contained would have probably resulted in death in less than a week, she said.
“We have an amazing community that is willing to do this for us,” Brabant said. “Since we are mostly a volunteer organization, we have to pay these expenses out of our budget.
“This was truly a generous gift of both time and money and shows the spirit of the community coming together.”
